The domino effect has begun. Following SEVENTEEN’s concert cancellation, StarPlanet has just announced that Super Junior’s “Super Show 8: Infinite Time” tour will be put on hold.
As you may know, the 8-member group was supposed to perform at Axiata Arena Bukit Jalil on 1st March 2020. Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Malaysian concert has been postponed.
The statement reads:
“The health and safety of the artistes, performers, patrons and staff is our priority and concern. This decision has been reached in response to the health authorities and worldwide efforts in taking preventative measures to curb and contain the escalating coronavirus epidemic.
This decision is also made due to travel restrictions out in place which have caused unforeseen impacts on global logistics affecting the planning of equipment shipping process.”
The new date will be announced later, but the organiser has assured concert-goers that the venue will likely remain unchanged. Concert tickets will remain valid despite the change of date, so hold on to your tickets first.
We predict that upcoming K-pop concerts (Kim Jae Joong, AB6IX, and GOT7) will also suffer the same fate. Let’s just hope that it’ll be postponed instead of cancelled.
